Field Trips at the Playseum

There is so much fun and learning to be had at the Playseum!

  • Children can grocery shop in the Safeway and use their counting, sorting, and social skills.

  •  Stroll into the Pet shop and hear, see, smell and touch real animals. We have rabbits, frogs, lizards, doves, fish, hamsters and more.

  • In the Art Studio, children can use their own imagination and create something new out of recycled or new mediums, paint on our plexi-glass wall or have our signature art piece done for a group rate of $2/per child. Signature project is painting a ceramic tile, glazing it and allowing you to take it home the same day!

  • Try on a costume and learn about countries from around the world in the international room.

  • Play the drums on our musical stage in the family room, or cook up a pretend pizza in our Domino's Pizza shop in the family room.

  • Play tea party and type up a letter on the old typewriter in Grandma's attic.

  • Drive a fire truck, dig up some seashells in the Pirates Cove, or ride a kayak in the nature area. 

  • Come make your own homemade candy lip-balm, toothpaste, lotion, bubble bath at the Be-Hive Bar. (there is an additional cost of $1-$4/per child depending on which item you choose to create)

  • Don't forget to visit Ms. Gina's Bakery where you can whip up a mini strawberry smoothie for a group rate of $1/per child.  


The general field trip admission includes access to all the pretend cityshops where kids use thier imagination, play dress-up, roll play and enjoy a fun entertaining BEETALES StingerTIME and for a few dollars more hands-on activities with our staff are available too!  

As the children venture through the pretend cityshops they will experience city life at their level. If Buzz items have been purchased prior to field trip the kids will experience an amazing time in the Art Studio, the Playseum Bakery and the Be-Hive Bar as Playseum staff interact with hands-on activities.  In every city shop, we have books for sale that relate to the cityshops and on Tuesdays and Thursdays school teachers can purchase any used book in the building for only $2. No limit.  

Books, snacks and additional activities can all be purchased with Playseum dollars. Click on BUZZ ITEMS to read about more acitivites.

What are the chaperone requirements?

We ask that there is at least a 1:7 ratio of chaperones to kids. If children are under 3 years of age the ratio must be 1:3.

How many kids can I bring for a field trip?

We can accommodate field trips up to 80 children at a time. Safety and supervision is important to us, therefore we require chaperones to be 18 years or older. During the months of May, August and September we can offer adult admission for half price. Be sure to ask for the discount.   

How much does a field trip cost?

The price is $7.00 per child or adult. There are discounts for groups over 80. Our most popular and discounted activities for field trips are the ceramic tile activity ($2) and the strawberry smoothie ($1) please let us know if you would like to add these to activities on to your reservation. If you would like a different project to create here and take with you then let us know we love to get kids imaginations rolling.  

How long is a field trip?

The time allotted is between 2 - 2.5 hours maximum.  If you would like the field trip to last longer we can add an hour on to your trip for an additional $2.00 per child. 

What can we do for lunch?

For an additional $25.00 fee per 30 minutes, you can choose to bring in your own lunch. This allows YOUR group to reserve the eating area for your private use. Our eating area can hold up to 20 children at a time. If you have a small group, you may opt to monopolize only one table at a time in the lunch area allowing our regular guests to use the lunch area as well.  If you choose to do it this way there is no charge.  

How do I schedule my field trip?

Call us and first verify date and availability. We then will send you a preliminary letter, invoice and a layout of the Playseum you will be attending. Nothing is reserved or put on our calendar until we have recieved a credit card on file or a $100 non-refundable deposit.   You will have one week to get back to us with a credit card number or to put down the deposit.  If you should opt to give the credit card but no deposit we have the right to charge the card should you be a no show and you will be charged for the amount of people that you made reservation for.  If you should choose to put down a deposit of $100.00 then your balance will be adjusted according to how many children & adults actually come in the door. There are NO refunds and should there be a need for any credit it would be given in the form of Playseum dollars.  If you should have to cancel your field trip you may give us another date upon the day of cancelation with a $25.00 change fee.  The Playseum reserves the right to refuse entrance to unplanned or unpaid field trips. Field trips that are 12 of less do not need to make a reservation if intending to come Monday -Friday.
